Episode of "Your Hit Parade", originally broadcast 16 of April, 1955. Featuring Dorothy Collins, Russell Arms, Snooky Lanson, and Gisele MacKenzie performing covers of big hits of the day, including "Tweedle Dee", "How Important Can It Be" and "The Ballad of Davy Crockett". A good time capsule of the time. Most noteworthy moment: Raymond Scott's orchestra performing one of their standards complete with surreal special effects!

Raymond Scott plays Powerhouse!
Worth the download if only for the Raymond Scott Quintette playing Powerhouse (the song used in most "factory" scenes in WB cartoons).

Perhaps I'm biased, but I feel the version of "The Ballad of Davy Crockett" is worth the bandwith of the download.
